Proposals Of Marriage Are A Serious Business

Proposals of marriage are a tentative and nerve wrecking time for the one proposing and the one being proposed to. Proposals of marriage are meant to shake you to your core. It’s a seriously earth shaking decision. And the impact is so broad, not quite like a ripple on a lake, more like a tidal wave. Everyone you know and love will be impacted. It’s love, why be surprised? And it’s no surprise when we experience a seriously sharp increase in heart rate, our pupils dilate and the endorphins rage, maybe we should classify proposals of marriage as an ‘extreme sport?’


Nerves Are Expected When Proposing

And what a relief when your beloved one says YES! These smiles and sighs of relief are genuinely not scripted at all. It’s probably the most fun I’ve ever had with a photographic client. The intensity is really massive.

Whether you are proposing a new idea to a client or to your children for a new meal plan that cuts out meat – proposals of every kind in life, are a challenge. I proposed less meat on the menu this month – I was successful. But it would have really upset me if it had failed. I like animals too much.

Right? I mean, we ask for someone to be with us for the rest of our lives and they may need some time to think about it. In this case, with these two amazing young people, that was a short space of about 5 seconds.

Proposing Marriage!

Getting down on one knee is a vulnerable place to be. Truly, it’s when you put yourself below your intended. You look up into their eyes and basically beg them to have you for richer or poorer and until death do you part! Proposing marriage isn’t to be taken lightly. And yet many people do find themselves divorcing. And re-marrying.

Proposals of Marriage are a Seriously Serious Business

She really really energised everyone around here at the Hampton Inn in Key largo, with that smile and that radiance.

Seriously, though, proposals of marriage are seriously a serious business. Many lives change in that instant. You – whether on bended knee or free falling from 13,000 ft – yes sky diving proposals happen too – you go from being single, and hopeful, to being stunned and possibly committed!

Best practice I’d say is be some place where you are happy at the beach or wherever you are comfortable, because you will go from calm and coasting along to suddenly shocked, head spinning like a top, thousands of questions, definitely a gut reaction and adrenaline flowing. And hopefully a ‘yes’ will come out of your mouth and precipitate the kind of smiles only that ‘yes’ can generate!

Saying this makes me wonder whether a proposal of marriage shouldn’t be classed as an ‘extreme sport!’ Seriously – your heart beat increases, your pupils dilate, you experience a hit of endorphins for sure. And then what …. you hear yourself saying the words that will – in an inevitable wedding event a few months along – change your entire world and that of your family members. WOW! No pressure or anything!! Wooh!

Creative Visual Content

When does an image change your moment?

Visual communication is the most effective way of passing information because the human mind processes things in images. The majority of people respond quickly to visual images instead of texts. … Any form of advertisement should use images and graphics because it will have a great impact on boosting your business.Aug 10, 2017

Visual marketing is the discipline studying the relationship between an object, the context it is placed in and its relevant image. Representing a disciplinary link between economy, visual perception laws and cognitive psychology, the subject mainly applies to businesses such as fashion and design.

Visual content marketing refers to using images to convey valuable information in an engaging visual format. … Visual content marketing examples include images with educational or inspiring text, infographics, and “signature branded images” that promote written, audio, or video content.Oct 20, 2017

Florida Keys Wedding Video

sizzle is what happened when Josh and Michelle eloped at Kona Kai Resort & Botanical Gardens – the botanical scenery and beach front helped

Florida Keys Wedding Video Elopement At Kona Kai Resort

Stay at the beachfront cottage – you’ll fall in love again – ask to stay in Bread Fruit ‘Intimate Moment’ at the Kona Kai Resort KL Styled Shoot with Sky Born Visual making our Florida Keys Wedding Video. Photography by Angie B Makeup Artistry! She has an eye!

When the wedding bug gets you it doesn’t let go easily. Our Florida Keys are heavily dependent on tourism and a growing percentage of that is specifically hotels and locations for destination weddings. Since 2015 film, photography and social media marketing production for Real Estate and now Wedding Film & Wedding Photography have become Sky Born Visual’s bread and butter.

Josh & Michelle’s beachfront elopement moment

We tell story, we are a safe, happy, fun place to tell your story!

As you’d guess from a quarter century of scuba instructing worldwide – we’re adventurous and love tech. So underwater cameras and lights – we still have them all – became our best buddies on land. And then they started to fly. So we got FAA Part107 certified and commercial aerial film and photography became a super skill to complete the Ocean Air Earth combo that is our trademark.

When you learn and really begin to understand making film it doesn’t mean you ‘get’ where it’s going. I mean the end result. Visualizing that is the trick to knowing what to film.

That knowledge comes with hours of editing. I’ve seen that time and again: great footage; no editing patience! Others want to do it all themselves: plan, shoot, edit, distribute. Yes. The OCD types….like me:)

I’m tenacious. Get a grip and hold on tight to a worthy cause. Wedding Film is a beautiful universal story worth sticking mourned to see.

Kona Kai Resort, Botanical Gardens and Art Gallery – Key Largo’s Hidden Gem!

Our thought for brides coming here to Kona Kai Resort was that they’d want something seriously elopement or wedding related to give them the idea of the potential of this amazing botanical garden and it’s 13 beautiful peaceful cottages. Bread Fruit’s got his hammock and sandy beach area all to itself and they all overlook the point and the lagoon. Everyone gets to see the sunset from the point. Kona Kai is magical and coupled with that I love the energy that surrounds the complexity of elements for a real or styled elopement or wedding.


‘It’s the intention to make perfection that wins me over in the wedding industry – because life is full of contention and often compromise is forced upon us – which can result in aesthetic trauma, and mediocrity. Weddings aren’t the place for that – perfect perfect moments collide on the beach, in the church, at the mosque, synagogue, temple, woodland aisle, at the altar, at sea, underwater wherever they happen, it’s these ancient customs that bring our humanity back to us, this universal global appeal

Filming a wedding (whether it is real or styled) is as intimate as the wedding itself. It has to be. You can’t get ‘feeling’ if you don’t get intimate. With this “Kona Kai Key Largo Sizzle Styled Shoot” film we made we learned we’re really good at visualizing the end result. The film maker and the producer and the director all come together and say; we have these tools and this setting, so now, ‘will that work?

And we think, well, wow that worked, or that didn’t! And look at that – let’s try it again this way. When reviewing this film all alone late at night after the final edit rendered, this voice shouted at me from some place “- emergency – alert. Stop. You made something – something that looks…..this looks REAL!”

The thought was these two are brilliant together they are professional and bounce off each other perfectly. And they look like a couple in love! And then someone said it, what the inner editor, producer, director was saying already, “Nada this is amazing! It looks so real,” Michelle Van Alsburg – model, actress, barista.


Angie Bray – Of Angie Bray Make Up Artistry was a mystery to me until the moment cameras started rolling. Lights camera make up action. I will be forever wowed by the gorgeous red-blush tinted hair with its ringlets and waves. The face and hair were met by me with the ‘knock me down with a feather’ response. And she kept it looking good for 5 hours!

Her make up was immaculate. She made up Michelle in the Papaya Suite overlooking the water. Michelle was rapturously happy with the work Angie did. Her artistry remained beautiful throughout the photo and film and drone shoots, in the wind! And when finally the Cupcake Champagne cork was popped, Michelle looked as fresh as ever.

Les Fleurs – Key Largo Flowers & Gifts – Le Bouq and Le Bout – Pastel Perfection

Le Decor Du Jour – Trading Post, Islamorada – Les Rose Gold Cups by ‘Fred’ like a solo cup only gloriously rosey with a perfection of gold – these things are amazing. I’m definitely keeping them.

Le Champagnoise – Cupcake Rose Champagne – Definitely the tickle all of those gathered were waiting for – nothing at all – comparable to a Florida Keys sunset on the point at Kona Kai Resort – rien de tel dans le monde – avec une glasse du champagne rose – and ones amour!

Les Croissant – Cafe Moka always delivers the most authentic and superior French pastry – from the source – originally from the Basque region of France – Narbonne – the family Bellion donated a selection of chocolate, almond, sugar and plain petite croissants; a delicate selection for our bride and groom at their lovely table under the tiki.

Kona Kai Resort – Botanical Garden – Art Gallery – The Papaya Suite Is a classic French Modern three room suite with full kitchen. It overlooks the water and has its own particular hammock beach area. It’s the best appointed of the 13 suites and would be the suite of choice for me where I the bride. It’s big enough to really relax in whilst observing the comings and going’s of the guests across the beach and to the point.

Michelle – She is a savvy jewelry making barista with a particular style all to herself. An experience model, the world seems to really be her oyster. Incredibly serene and surprisingly sassy – she seems shy and then you see that twinkle in her eye. Thanks Michelle! We loved your presence. You sizzled! And it felt distinctly to me like you knew more than me about what we were doing here!

Josh – He is a world traveler with mixology skills beyond belief. Known for his charm and happy go lucky lifestyle, Josh brought experienced modeling to the table – for which we have Angie Bray to thank. Josh you were an absolute pleasure to film and photograph, I get quite keenly this sense of being the amateur.
